I had a countertop gas cooktop with grill and down draft. I
didn't like it. Whenever I had the downdraft on it seemed
to suck the heat away from the burners.

I hope you have success with yours.

That's a good way to buy major appliances because you get
the full warranty and they make it like new.

I did that with a Dacor once.

Oh, so yours is electric. My Dacor was electric, but I
wouldn't go back to it. I love a gas cooktop.

Sounds like your husbands very handy.

Yes it was a brand new GE Gas White on White.

I'll be so happy to get the new one.

Heh. I wouldn't mind. Mine are usually nearly empty, because we shop
really often, so we don't keep a lot of stuff in storage. Our freezer
typically has only bread (half a dozen or so loaves) and ice cubes in
it.

James informs me that our outlets are indeed GFCI.

(Not moving the toaster oven, though. It's really the only place for
it in our kitchen, and I checked -- it would take a major effort to get
it off that shelf.)

Nothing fancy, but functional. We hope that someday we can afford to
remodel it into our dream kitchen, but companies don't seem to give
raises anymore.

Well, we'd like an island with a cooktop and sink, and we'd like to
remove the wall to the right of the fridge and get rid of the formal
dining room (which we never use) and have just a giant eat-in kitchen.

The Wolf range and hood that our friends have is a pipe dream for us
right now, but we'd like a good dishwasher. Our nearly-new Kitchenaid
SUCKS.

I don't know what your idea of a dream kitchen is but I think yours is
very warm and inviting. I like your cabinets!

Me too... I love anything naughty pine.

I especially like her nice big window over her sink... I think it
should be illegal (against building code) to make kitchens without at
least one big window.

I agree. When my ex and I built my present house (1969), the plans
called for the sink on an interior wall, and the stove under the double
window. Huh? That got changed first thing - sink under the window;
stove on interior wall.

My son wants to put in a microwave/exhaust fan combo to replace my old
exhaust fan over the stove - any bad experiences with those? He and
his wife have had them in their two homes so far, and really like the
arrangement.

Great idea if you never use your stove... why would you want to have to
reach over hot pots to get to your microwave oven... and microwave
ovens as soon as they're built-n tend to die, then what.... the next
one won't fit into that space exactly without reworking some cabinetry.
I don't want my microwave oven any higher than directly on the
counter... more than once I've reached in to pull out a cup of reheated
coffee only for the handle to be too hot and auto-reflex made me drop
it, what a friggin' mess... what if it were a caserole dropping three
feet onto your stove top, what if only a coffee mug but you have a
glass top stove. And typically with an over the stove nuker you can no
longer use tall pots on your back burners. Nix the idea.

It's really sweet. And so roomy! What would be your remodel plans?

That's what we have. No problems with it.

Well, assuming a big pile of money fell in our lap <g> we'd want a
grilltop and a nice big exhaust hood so that we can grill anytime.
It's really windy where we live, and grilling outdoors is pretty
unreliable.

A double oven would be great. 48" Wolf with 6 burners and a grill.

I make my own beer, and it's in kegs out in the garage, which is right
behind the kitchen wall! So, beer on tap in the kitchen would be
sweet.

A walk-in pantry.

But aside from all these luxuries, really the main thing we want to do
is open up the kitchen into a larger eat-in area.

I can't even imagine what it would cost.
